According to the American Psychological Association, 42 percent of Americans say gift-giving is a top source of holiday stress. If you find yourself amongst this group a new local business may be able to help ease the burden.
Rivertown Shopper is a gift shopping, wrapping and shipping service designed to give busy people easy access to the unique offerings of our area’s local stores. They offer many levels of service from a simple gift suggestion, or trip to the post office, to purchasing, wrapping and shipping your entire holiday gift list.
The service, founded by Tarrytown resident Fiona Galloway, works with individuals and businesses to find creative, local solutions to their gift-giving needs. While there is a charge for the service, working with a shopping consultant may actually save you money by helping you stick to a budget and eliminating the temptation to impulse buy.
